Grizzler is a good times free improvising big band. Comprised of fifteen members (or so), all Boston Area based musicians, the ensemble was created in the fall of 2008. The music of Grizzler is a free flowing, spontaneous creation which has been developed with scientific methodology designed for maximum audience enjoyment. The song, with which the reader may be familiar, titled "we will rock you," was secretly dedicated to the band. Grizzler invites people large and small to hear with new ears.
